Today starts a new challenge at Our Daily Bread Designs.
It's our inspiration challenge (see photo below my card).
I've used other colors in my card but I think I have the feeling of inspiration piece, in MY head anyway! I have the paisley rising up into the main body of the card kind of like the tail rising up to the body of the peacock. With the bright bluish purple spot/flowers(?) on the inspiration piece being my bow at the top right.
Today I have used an old technique called Joseph's coat. I sponged various colors on my cardstock and then heat embossed the Boho Paisley background with VersaMark and Pearl Lavender which is basically clear with a tinge of lavender color. I then inked the whole panel with black Versafine, rubbing it in well until everything (especially the in between places) looked very black. After this I took a rag and wiped the card off, leaving behind the embossed pattern with the color protected underneath. I absolutely love the new Faith, Hope and Love dies from ODBD so I made three layers of "Love" (Christ great love for us) and added it to the bottom right. I stamped the cross (using my Misti) several times to make sure it was VERY black and then colored it in (using Copic markers) with colors to match my background. The two ovals are new from ODBD, one being "stitched" and the black elegant oval under both is a classic design from ODBD. I've used a triangle layout for today's card. I almost forgot, I stamped one of the extra flowers from the Boho Love set to pop up a layer on my cross right in the middle. It is the same design just a tad smaller so that it more easily shows as a second layer.
